(WICHITA, Kan) — One second it was there…the next second an $11,000 dollar mower was stolen from an eastside home and it all happened in the middle of daylight.
A Wichita man who makes some side money mowing lawns says his business has hit quite a set-back after the expensive piece of machinery was taken.
The last thing anyone wants to do on a sweltering summer day is mow the lawn. For Jeremiah Unruh he has been doing just that for the past 15 years to earn some extra cash. But he never thought in all that time that 11,000 dollars could be yanked away from him so quickly.
"You would not think up next to a house in any neighborhood that someone would do this.”
Unruh said the crime happened Thursday. He parked the expensive tractor in some shade at the house he just finished mowing. He then grabbed a quick lunch and ran an errand…in that short time span the mower went missing.
